Investing.com – Stocks on Wall Street fell in another volatile session on Friday as the ongoing sell-off in the major technology shares dragged the major averages to their third weekly loss in a row.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average declined 244 points, or 0.9%, to 27,657.

The S&P 500 dropped 1.1% to end at 3,319, while the Nasdaq Composite also fell 1.1%, closing at 10,793.

The major averages slumped for a third straight week after the Federal Reserve pledged to keep interest rates low for a long time but gave no new hints about any further stimulus measures.

The S&P 500 lost 0.7%, the Nasdaq dropped 0.6%, while the Dow posted a small drop of about 0.1%.

Shares of the major tech companies, such as Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT), Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL), Facebook (NASDAQ:FB), and Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX), continued to struggle, with each dropping around 5% this week.

For the month, all six stocks are down at least 10%, with Apple faring the worst – off 17.2%.
